Holiday advertisement had its ups and downs during the past 60-70 years. First of all, political correctness has wiped out any mention of the word Christmas. Of course, the world has become less religious etc. etc. but in today’s world how many are those who associate Christmas with religion rather than presents or spending quality time with their love ones? Only a handful. Second of all, in print advertisement, wishing happy New Year to costumers has become a cliché. Or so it seems so, since you can count on your fingers the print ads that appeared since the 1990s.

Nonetheless, below you’re going to see both awesome New Year ads and really poor ones. For instance, there’s a 1953 gasoline ad that advertises about a new type of gas. It’s hilarious and I don’t think that it was worth the money. Furthermore, important companies such as Schiltz, Pepsi, Coca-Cola or Audi can be found in the list below. Therefore, enjoy, be inspired and if you will like this article, then please share it with your friends or community! Many thanks! Cheers!
